Claudia Winkleman may be the beating heart of The Traitors (and the BBC, to be honest) but even she managed to get in trouble during filming.

The presenter, 51, is back with a brand-new line-up in The Traitors series 2, which has somehow become even more gripping with stroke of genius twists.

‘But Ross is…’ will be the moment of 2024.

A contestant from the first series, however, has revealed that Claudia was actually ‘too lovely’ and her bosses weren’t happy about it.

Fay, who came agonisingly close to the final, said: ‘Claudia is lovely. She got in trouble for being too nice to us.

‘There was one time when it was really cold in the church and she came in with her people and had her mittens on and a hot water bottle.

‘She asked if I was cold and gave me the hot water bottle until the mission started.’

‘She was in it with us,’ Fay told OK!. ‘She was devastated at the banishments and she was so down to earth.’

Claudia recently confirmed she’s still in touch with all the cast of series one and if anything she seems even more invested in her faithfuls and traitors second time around.

At a recent screening, the Strictly host explained why how she chose her three traitors – Paul, Ash and Harry.

‘They were passionate,’ she said. ‘You can’t show all of those chats because otherwise that would be hours, but I do talk to them for a long time.

‘Paul was adamant and I mean adamant in the same way that Alyssa in series one she was like, “give it to me – I have come here for this title and you’ve got to give it to me.”

‘Harry, because he’s compelling and I thought would play a good game because he did that whole “you want to kiss me or you’re gonna punch me – I’m going to pretend to be an idiot.” You’re not an idiot so I look forward to watching what happens here.

‘Ash because she really, really, really wants to win the money and she wants to be a Traitor.

‘They felt like a good trio and then I wasn’t in control of the fourth which, you know, I’m not a control freak or anything but I was angry about it…’

The Traitors airs Wednesday, Thursday and Friday on BBC One.
